Hello, My name is Ms. Taylor Fineday and I am from Onion Lake First Nation - Treaty 6 Territory. This is my first year teaching and at Chief Taylor School! My hobbies include attending Powwows during the summer, Beading, and Crafting
If you have any questions or need some help, you can e-mail me at tfineday@oledu.ca or call/text at 306-914-0236

Reflection: When a shape is reflected in a mirror we see a reflection image. The line segment that joins a point to its image is perpendicular to the line of reflection. A shape and its image have opposite orientations, or face opposite ways. A reflection is sometimes called a flip because when a shape is reflected, it is flipped over.

Practice drawing reflections on a piece of paper. Take a picture of your drawings and send them to ct.tfineday@gmail.com or text a picture to 306 914 0236

When we rotate an image, we turn a shape on a point of rotation. We can turn or rotate the image clockwise or counterclockwise. The point of rotation will be on one of the vertices of the shape.

Think about the hands on a clock. When the minute hand moves from the 12 to the 3, it rotates a quarter turn clockwise.

When the minute hand moves from the 12 to the 6, It rotates a half turn clockwise.

When the minute hand move from the 12 to the 9, it rotates a three-quarter turn.

Please click the link below to watch how to rotate objects.

Now that you have seen how to do rotations, on a piece of paper draw a triangle. Label the vertices A, B and C. Rotate the triangle a half turn clockwise, and label the vertices on the image.

Draw a square and label the vertices A, B, C and D. Rotate the square 3/4 turn clockwise and label the image and its vertices.

Draw a shape (not a circle) of your choice. Choose a vertex to rotate your shape 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Label your image and the vertices.

Once you have finished, take a picture and email or text the picture to ct.tfineday@gmail.com or 306-914-0236.

Week 12 January 18 - 22/21

SS 5.5 & 5.6

Terminology:

Edge: a line segment between faces.

Face: any of the flat surfaces of an object.

Vertex: the corner of an object

Side: In a 2 dimensional shape, one of the line segments, or edges, in a 3 dimensional shapes, one of the faces

Symmetrical: A shape is symmetrical when it can be folded so that one part matches the other part exactly. The fold line is the line of symmetry.

Look at the pictures below for further explanation.

This week we are focusing on solving equations using variables (Outcome P5.2)

What is a variable? A variable in math is our unknown. We usually represent this unknown with a letter or a symbol. For example, in the following equation, the variable is the letter c.

c + 2 = 5

c - 2 = 5 - 2

c = 3

I can check my answer by substituting my answer for the variable.

3 + 2 = 5

If I get the right answer, then I know the value of the variable.

Week 14 (January 25 - 29 2021) home study:

This week we will beginning a new unit: Hero's (Personal and Philosophical)

Unit is focused on what makes a hero and how hero's make a difference, students will explore and learn about First Nations hero's, current events and roles heroes are playing in society.

Watch the following introductory read aloud which is a celebration of Indigenous Hero's titled "Go Show the World" written by Wab Kinew

We will continue with the Fatty Legs Novel with Chapter 7 and Pronouns. Then finishing off next week with the assignments of After the story and The Schools.

FATTY LEGS

Listen and watch Chapter 7, then do the assignment below.

A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. Pronouns are important in English. They are some of the first words we learn: I, you, he, she, it. There are different kinds of pronouns for different situations: subject pronouns, object pronouns, possessive pronouns, and reflexive pronouns. Instead of Sara, we can say she. Instead of those guys, we can say them. Instead of the sun, we can say it.

** There is no printable learning package available this week. Please do the online assignment below.

Novel Study

This week is the beginning of the novel we will be reading. The goal is to read/listen to the story, then fill out the comprehension questions.

Fatty Legs is about an eight-year-old girl named Margaret Pokiak. She has set her sights on learning how to read, even though it means leaving her village in the high Arctic. Faced with increasing pressure, her father finally agrees to let her make the five day journey to attend school, but he warns Margaret of the terrors of residential school.

Watch the video, then do the Introduction Questions below.
